As ever, you can't go wrong with the multifarious Lincoln Center schedule. Jazz at Lincoln Center's season continues apace. The Metropolitan Opera's winter slate features acclaimed shows like La Boheme (until May 5), Il Trovatore (through Feburary 13), The Pearl Fishers (December 31–February 4) and Otello (until May 6). Highlights at the New York City Ballet include works by Tchaikovsky all season long; La Sylphide in mid-February; and, in January and February, All Balanchine I & II.
Great Performers, a classical music series running through June, will spotlight talents like pianist Alexander Gavrylyluk, violinist Yehudi Menuhin and soprano Karita, while programming for American Songbook series (January 19–April 1) will see the likes of Vanessa Williams, Craig Finn and Luluc performing pop staples.
Cinematic treats are also in store. The Film Society of Lincoln Center will host another edition of New York Jewish Film Festival in January, followed by February's Dance on Camera Festival and Film Comment Selects. The well-regarded New Directors, New Films begins in mid-March.
